Shaunie O’Neal Planning Basketball Wives: LA Makeover?
Shaunie O’Neal, the creator and executive producer of the Basketball Wives franchise, may be planning a total makeover of the Los Angeles version of the show. Basketball Wives: L.A. has already seen changes made to its cast, including the exit of first season cast member Imani Showalter and the addition of urban model Brooke Bailey and rapper Adi “Bambi” Benson, but not all changes are good. Compared to the first season’s two million viewers per episode, only a little over one million viewers have tuned in each week since the premiere of the show’s new season. The decrease in viewership may be attributed to the boring plot lines, which not even Jackie “Koo Koo” Christie‘s antics have made interesting.
One BBW: L.A. viewer went straight to the source with his complaints about the show, tweeting to Shaunie, “Basketball Wives LA is boring!!!! Please cancel this show!!!! I just can’t.” To which she replied, “how bout a complete makeover?” The fans have spoken, and apparently, Shaunie is listening. If anyone is given their walking papers next season, Gloria Govan should be the first! She is about as exciting as watching paint dry, and has about as much flavor as dry toast.
Who do you think should be given the boot from the show?
